Early on in the season, Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott was viewed as an MVP candidate. Well, the Cowboys were 5-4 heading into Week 11 and Prescott had widely struggled with Dallas losing four of six games heading into Sunday vs. the Lions, including a loss to the lowly Jets. Prescott and the Cowboys bounced back in a big way.

Prescott finished with 444 passing yards and three touchdowns with a 116.6 passer rating, good for 34.56 fantasy points. He finished tops among QBs in the early going of the slate and came in at sub-10% ownership on DraftKings at $6,700. He mostly connected with WRs Michael Gallup ($6,500) and Randall Cobb ($4,300).

Gallup was a strong GPP pivot off of Amari Cooper ($7,700), who finished with three catches and 38 yards, busting a lot of lineups. If you were smart enough to stack Prescott-Gallup-Cobb, the trio returned big value with a combined 85.24 fantasy points for $17,500, roughly 35% of your salary cap. Gallup finished with nine catches for 148 yards and a TD for 26.8 FPTS and Cobb had four catches for 115 yards and a TD, or 24.5 FPTS.

The Cowboys were able to hold off the Lions 35-27 to improve to 6-4 on the season, taking over first place in the NFC East a half a game ahead of the Philadelphia Eagles. It’s worth monitoring Prescott since he was sacked late in the game and appeared to be hurt, but remained in the game.
